Match Discussion - Chelsea (a)

No sooner had The Might Gunners finally registered a win AND play well in the same game do we have another stern test of our abilities, and this one`s a biggy.

Chelsea vs. Arsenal

A win here will put us in touching distance of the Lotto Chavs.

Much like The Gunners, Chelsea are no longer the terrifying force they once were, they look like conceding a goal at the drop of a hat. Though with the recent acquisition of Demba Ba they could probably score a few too.

What do we think's going to happen? Who`ll win? Who`ll play? Will Wenger be able to fasten his coat?

Wenger does have a problem with the zipper on his Winter coat. Time to get one of better quality, but if I know him well, probably waiting for a Sale to get a bargain buy :-)

Playing the same front 6 as the Swansea game seems like a decent bet. Cazorla, Giroud,Walcott and Wilshere supported by Diaby and Coquelin gave a good account of themselves in the last game and given that we still dont know what our strongest team is, its worth persisting with for another game. We cant do with a single pivot or defensive midfelder against Chelsea. Diaby will have to be supported by another player, be it Coquelin or Ramsey. Podoslki could be brought in on the left if we take the lead as he is an excellent counter attacking player but starting with Santi would ensure slightly higher possession and creativity. Keiran Gibbs will have his hands full tracking the runs of Mata as will Sagna tracking Hazard. Pressing for the ball high up the pitch when Azpilicueta is in possession may be a decent bet given his inexperience. It will be big plus if Terry doesnt play given how reckless in comparison Luiz can be. Hope we release the handbrake and have a good go at them.

I guess it would help to get people into the forums if I actually put in a link that worked huh? It's fixed now. Sorry about that.
